Tyson Fury offers cryptic response to David Haye’s callout

Tyson Fury has offered a cryptic response to David Haye after the ‘Hayemaker’ called him out on Saturday night.

Haye was competing on the undercard of Evander Holyfield v Vitor Belfort in what was his first fight in three years.

The 40-year-old defeated Joe Fournier via unanimous decision, winning by scores of 79-72, 80-71 and 79-72.

After the match he called out WBC and The Ring heavyweight champion Fury – almost eight years since the pair were due to fight.

In 2013, The Gypsy King had just come off the back of defeating Steve Cunningham to go 21-0, whilst Haye had not fought since defeating Derek Chisora in July 2012.

Haye would eventually pull out of the fight in November, and it has since never taken place. The heavyweight hinted on Saturday, however, that he wants the bout to happen.

He said: “I’d only come back for Tyson Fury. I don’t want to show him what I’ve got, I was able to win this fight without showing the ‘Hayemaker’.

“I don’t want to show him what I’ve got left, I want to surprise him on the night. My overhand right… which I didn’t even show in there tonight, I didn’t want to scare him.

“If I’d have let my right hand go, he wouldn’t be taking the fight.”

Fury’s response to Haye callout

Whilst once a hugely anticipated matchup, whether a bout would take place between the pair now remains unclear.

Fury is the current heavyweight champion of the world and is due to face Deontay Wilder on October 9, with a clash against Anthony Joshua potentially on the line as well.

Posting an image of Fury standing over Haye, he wrote on Instagram: “There’s only one.”
